  • Cook cactus in boiling water in large saucepan 10 to 15 min. or until tender, adding beans for the last 5 min.; drain. Rinse under cold water; drain well.
  • Place cactus mixture in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; mix lightly.


Substitute 1 drained 29-oz. jar sliced tender cactus for the cooked sliced fresh cactus. Cook beans in boiling water 5 min. or until crisp-tender; drain. Toss with cactus, then continue as directed.


Since the pomegranate juice will stain your fingers and clothes, be sure to wear an apron and gloves when removing the seeds from the pomegranate.
